Computer Training and Education
Bahria University has designed a program for basic computer training and education for the deprived class in Pakistan who cannot afford to pay tuition fees. This program, at no tuition fee cost, is designed by the students of Bahria as per their requirement for completion of 32 hours community work as part of their degree. The program, known as ‘Education For All’ (EFA), will be run for a duration of 6-8 weeks inviting students who are interested in learning basic computer skills and other educational courses.
In Pakistan, a huge percentage of the population cannot afford basic education and therefore cannot match the skill requirements for many jobs — this leads to both unemployment and poverty. Bahria University took a significant step by showing a willingness to provide university resources such as computer labs, lecture halls and class rooms free of cost to the students of the EFA program, with an aim to address the issue of illiteracy in Pakistan.
Bahria University is a multi-campus institution of higher education, which will remain committed to the attainment of highest standards in teaching, learning and research. The scholars and professionals it produces will be encouraged to pursue truth, civility and integrity. Read more>>
